Teacher/Parent Pack


The Everything You Need to Learn to Read pack!

Suitable for parents and tutors


Exclusive to Reading Matters, this handy pack will suit parents wanting to help their children learn to read, and tutors who need a single set for each student.

It comes with all 62 Pocket Rocket stories (A7 size), perfect for small hands and durable enough to withstand constant handling. The fun comic-strip style means children will want to read the stories over and over again!

Practice makes perfect!

The pack comes with a Reading Guide which has a summary of each story, its theme, grapheme focus, tricky words and punctuation, along with a series of questions to guide you when chatting with your child about the story.

Also included is a colourful sounds reference card which gives the grapheme (written form of the sounds) for all 44 sounds, from simple “one letter one sound” to “two or three letters one sound”. They appear in the same order as the stories and each grapheme is represented by a character from its Pocket Rocket stories.

Great for phonics practice and very useful for spelling words.

The 62 imaginative stories are packed with humorous characters and quirky plots to engage the reader. They have been written specifically around the progressive learning of the sounds. Children can successfully use their emerging phonic skills to read and enjoy these fun stories.

Pack includes:

62 stories covering the 44 phonemes: 

Phase 2:

j v w x y z qu ch sh th ng ai ee igh oa oo ar or ur ow oi ear air ure er

Phase 4:

Content and design.

Impressed by the way , interesting stories are made from simple words. Each booklet being short , the reader is not fatigued from the effort.

Parent/teacher pack

It is a great product. Easy for kids to follow through the program and small enough to bring along if going out/travelling as everything is in the pouch.

This little pack is great. It has helped my child to pronounce and easily remember different sounds. Highly recommend.

Exactly as advertised and arrived quickly too. Love the fact that these are the same books that my kid's teacher is using at school
